Hospital Tower Atrium
South Bend, IN
The Atrium of the Beacon Children’s Hospital Tower takes on a nature theme giving patients a fun and colorful learning experience. Alongside design partner Peter Hyde Design, Xibitz created a unique and eye-catching space that extends comfort and inspiration to patients and visitors. Xibitz custom fabricated a 3-story tall tree sculpture and an additional balcony treehouse. Visitors can walk through the lower branches that make up the tree’s trunk. The space has multiple interactive learning exhibits that incorporate animal cutouts, flipbooks, and sound. Leaf cutouts adorn the skylight and colorful dragonflies hang from the ceiling – both catching the light and creating shimmering shadows throughout the space.
